Adelaide’s alt-rock champions colourblind have returned with their brand new anthem, Longsleeves, and news of a headline show in Adelaide on November 19 at Lion Arts Factory.
Following on from their previous singles Seatbelt (2020) and Changing Seasons (2021), Longsleeves rounds out an incredible trifecta of singles from Adelade’s next breakout band. Another bold leap forward in colourblind’s artistic progression, Longsleeves arrives with a deliciously grunge riff and an electrifying ‘woah-oh’ that’s gonna feel oh-so-good to sing with your mates when live music returns around the country. An ode to being young, ignorant and confused, Longsleeves is self-reflective song about learning to let go, growing up and moving on.
Frontman Finn Cameron says: “Longsleeves is about a time in my adolescence that has absolutely shaped the way I have grown into a young adult. A few bands in Adelaide started acting too big for their boots, this included me. I fell in love with Oasis and the rockstar persona. Arrogance and confidence. I thought I found the secret but I soon realised how warped my image of cool was. Something ticked over at some point though and I realised how much of a spoiled little brat I was being. Something else ticked over and I realised how stupid all these kids looked. Wearing their longsleeves and following the trends.”
colourblind are the band you are front row for, belting out every single word while embracing your best mates. Their cathartic yet feel good live shows have elevated the band from hometown heroes into the national spotlight where they’ve been earmarked as Ones to Watch by both Rolling Stone Australia and Live Nation.
In 2018, colourblind released their debut EP, Move Like You, which continues to resonate across the board while drawing more fans to the fold. Since its release, More Like You has been streamed over two million times and climbing, culminating in sold out shows with audience singalongs that overpower the band. The EP has also led to a string of supports with the likes of Grinspoon, Clowns, Bugs, TOWNS, These New South Whales, Good Boy, Columbus and Carb on Carb (NZ).
As we patiently await news of their sophomore EP, colourblind are set to play a hometown headline show at Lion Arts Factory on November 19. As usual, tickets are expected to fly out the door so don’t sleep on snagging ‘em. As for other states, you can catch colourblind in Brisbane this weekend playing Scorched Festival on October 29 and supporting Waxflower in Melbourne on December 11 and Sydney on December 12!
